that president obama won reelection >> there are some republicans who recognize they did lose and that new revenue new tax revenue will have to be part of any deficit deal. i noticed mitch mcconnell's talked about tax rates. he's going to insist that tax rates not go any higher. you've got the mathematicians trying to raise the numbers. you can exact the rate throughout a person's entire income. they're looking for ways to finagle this. republicans are going to have to retreat and they're going to get a better deal before the end of the year than going into the new year. >> i want to ask you about that, what eleanor said about the end of the year rather than going into the new year. who benefits, if anyone, if they kick the can down the road, get a new congress. isn't there something to be said with this new democratic strength coming into the senate? it's a little stronger there. you have a stronger president picked up a few seats in the house. doesn't kicking the can down until february or march and do something that's maybe a bandaid now help the cost. >> it helps to a certain extent, b

in close contact with president obama as well and the two spoke today for the third time in the last 24 hours. but nonetheless, this is really going to be a tough balancing act for morsi. on the one hand, egypt needs to keep its good relations with the united states in order to secure the $1.3 billion in military aid that the u.s. gives it each year as well as the additional support it gets from institutions like the world bank. and then on the other hand, morsi is a sunni muslim and he's facing strong calls from egyptians and muslims throughout the region to intervene in gaza. they want him to defend the palestinians who they say are being hurt by israel's economic blockade on the region. israel on the other hand says the blockade is the only way to keep military supplies from entering gaza. now, despite the talks of a potential cease-fire, today was actually the deadliest day since the conflict began a week ago. israel launched 100 air strikes on gaza today killing 27 palestinians and that brings the death toll in gaza to 137
